      Thats so nasty and people don't seem to riverbluff much in NL10, but how often does he just call flop and turn with a set on a drawy board? Does he really have that many sets in his range right there?

      Interested to see what the judge says actually, this isn't a standard spot imo. Guess its still a clear fold though.

      Well.. the board is not that drawy. There are only FD + some guthots that we're usually not second barreling.

      I'd just bet sth like $1.45 on turn. On the river it would be epic hard for a worse hand to call so I'm just betting sth like $2-$2.3 there. Folding after his shove is standart.

      I think you see straight a lot of times or at least two pair, so I like b/f river
      If you want to see showdown c/c river to induce bluffs and bets from worse hands
